The villa Rotterdam by the architectural company Ooze shows how to live a good life without falling in the ostentatious trap. It was an old structure redesigned into the new building. The villa looks very elegant but not bizarre. The architects’ concept was to wrap a new faceted skin over the house’s existing building. A new kitchen, staircase and extra bedrooms were created in the space between the new building and the old one. Ooze architects translated the owners’ desire to recycle the ‘soul’ of the house by transforming it in an unusual way. The features of the new part of the tremendous dwelling are prefabricated solid timber panels, a lush green roof and a softwood cladding built from fast-growing wood. I think the geometric form of the villa won’t leave anyone indifferent.
